Ladies I need your input. I'm helping a friend crowdsource an idea. She already has a name, but wanted to find the perfect tagline. What do you think when you hear the term "Portfolios, Profits & Pocketbooks"? 

I'll share more later. But for now, we're on opposite sides on this. I won't tell you what side I'm on because I don't want biased opinions.

You can’t do it alone!

Part of building your brand is sharing unique content from others in your industry. Remember, this isn't about you it’s about your audience and their needs. Sharing something that will help them will build trust with them, and will create a camaraderie with the people in your business network.

Do you know the 3 components to "Telling the World  about Your Brand?

Be the best version of yourself, not a copycat.
Don't just look at the current best in your industry and do what they do. Try to be the best you, but feel free to borrow from unlikely sources.

Certain types of people are particularly challenging to coach -- but it’s not fair to give up.
Dealing with defensiveness, insecurity, and distrust.

Story
Tagline
Business Growth Strategist - Entrepreneur - CEO - Mentor. Hey SiriusXM Radio, give me a show! #GetAdrienneonSiriusXMRadio
Introduction
I'm that chick that goes in the exit door and out the entrance door. That way they see me coming and going. 

But seriously, I am passionate about people growing. Nothing makes me sadder than to see people who think they are limited by their surroundings, the economy or a bad situation. I live to show people that they can grow and thrive in ANY economy, and to never settle.

I'm building an empire dedicated to providing people with tools to grow their business in any economy, with brand extensions in media and publishing (Empower Me! Corporation). I ran a recruitment consulting firm specializing in providing recruitment services for the portfolio companies of venture capital firms. 

I'm a serial entrepreneur with multiple ventures. My most recent launch was Curvy Girl Closet.

I am currently serving as a Mentor for the Straight Shot Accelerator Program in Omaha, NE, which is an accelerator dedicated to rapidly developing technology startups in e-commerce and SAAS.

I love my life and wouldn't change a thing. I'm a woman on a mission. I'm that person who makes it happen when people and circumstances tell me it can't be done.

Did I mention I'm also a writer, speaker and instructor? Well, now you know.
Bragging rights
My dog Jose Cuervo was photographed & appeared in Black Enterprise Magazine. I'm the newest Mentor for the Straight Shot Accelerator Program, My book No, You Can't Pick My Brain spent 3 weeks at the #1 spot for Hot New Releases on Amazon. My radio show was selected Top 100 Heavy Hitter Radio Shows for Small Business by Small Business Trends. MSNBC deemed me a "Jobs Expert". My "Brain Picking" article (now a book available on Amazon, in paperback, Kindle & Nook too) on Forbes got me selected by BlogHer as a Voice of the Week. And I placed in the Top10 Savviest in Social Media by Startup Nation. There's other stuff, but then I'd look like I'm bragging.
